The laboratory is equipped with the latest MTS Bionix testing system in an axial/torsional configuration. Load data is captured through the systems load cell and sent in real time to the MTS TestSuite™ software for analysis. This servohydraulic test system is capable of producing ±25 kN axially and ±250 N·m in torsion, with a total rotation of 270°.

MTS testing modalities in the laboratory include:

  • Biomaterial yield strength
  • Fatigue characteristics of orthopedic implants
  • Wear characteristics of medical implants
  • Fracture mechanics
  • Kinematic studies of the spine, hip, and knee
  • Biaxial failure testing of spinal instrumentation
